Queen Elizabeth II has not had to relin- quish her throne this year, but not one of her children have been able to create a work- able marriage. With possible affairs and obvious marital turmoil, it would be unthinkable for Charles and Diana to become the next King and Queen. How could they when they can- not control their home life? The Queen's other three have not been suc- cessful in mar- riage either, with Princess Anne divorced, Prince Andrew and the famous "Fergie" sepa- rated, and Prince Edward not yet showing interest in mar- riage at all. Apparently, the royal life is not as wonderful as it seems. Diana and Fergie have not experienced the fairy-tale lifestyle of prin- cesses.

Tuesday, November third had never been more antici- pated by mil- lions of Ameri- cans. Why was this election such a big deal? Because it was the first election in 1 2 years in which the candi- dates were run- ning neck and neck up until the very end. Only 20 months before the election, George Bush enjoyed the highest approval rating ever recorded follow- ing the U.S.'s victory in the Persian Gulf. The chance of Bush losing was improbable.

For those who lived it, it was much more than a story, it was a life-threatening disaster. Between the dates of August 23-25, Andrew pounded the coasts of Florida and Louisiana. At the peak of the storm in Florida, Andrew left at least 15 people dead, 700 injured, 63,000 home- less, and 3 mil- lion residents without power and water. The estimated dam- age was between $15 and $20 billion.

Several vic- tims of the hurricane had to ward off looters before they could begin surveying the damage of their own homes. For a storm that weather experts thought would disinte- grate quickly, Andrew fooled them all with winds as high as 165 miles per hour.

Bonnie Siler Section Editor In July of 1991, represen- tatives from the city of Birming- ham and the Southeastern Conference agreed to bring the first South- eastern Football Championship game to Legion Field. In 1992 it would take place on December 5. Birmingham was filled with excited anticipa- tion for the unpcommg event. "We are ex- tremely happy with the out- come of the contract nego- tiations," said Alan Martin, President of the Birmingham Football Founda- tion. Up until late fall everything was in place for the big game except the teams. Those playing would be the winners of the newly divided Eastern and Western Divisions. The winner of the championship game would represent the SEC at the USF&G Sugar Bowl against the Miami Hurri- canes. The two teams to play were the Alabama Crim- son Tide vs. the Florida Gators. Photo from Sports Illustrated On Dec. 5 over 83,000 fans filled Legion Field. With a final score of 28-21 the Tide headed for New Orleans to face the Hur- ricanes of Mi- ami. The Alabama defense took Miami's quarter- back, Gino Torretta by surprise. "Torretta didn't know what was going on," said Alabama cornerback Tommy Johnson. Look- ing at the final score, 34-13, it appeared that Miami was con- fused all four quarters. Alabama came as SEC champs, left as Sugar Bowl champs and better yet a National Cham- pionship team. •* Running back, Sherman Williams escapes the grasp of another Hurricane for an Alabama touchdown.

By 10 a.m. it had completely stopped. Samford took precautions by cancelling all classes after noon for fear » %T§ the storm would hit and students would be stranded on campus. Sure enough, by that afternoon the snow came again, and this time it was sticking. On campus as soon as things shut down Fri- day afternoon, students began making plans for their ven- tures in the snow. First, stealing cafete- ria trays for sledding down hills. Then, going to the fraternity houses for band parties. Then, more sledding, snowball fights, etc. By Saturday morning be- cause of the strong winds, snow drifts at least four feet deep held build- ing doors shut and power lines were down all over Birming- ham.

Spring Fling was a time to chill out and listen to some hot tunes as music was the main course for this fun-filled weekend. Curiosity Shop performed as the headline band. The crowd got into it as the band gave a show that put everyone in a festive mood. Still, Curiosity Shop was far from the only great music deafening the ears of eager listeners. Along with them, numerous stu- dent bands turned up their amps and had their performers doing their best Jimi Hendrix impressions. "I had a great time this week- end and thought all the stuff they had set up for students to do was great," sophomore Debbie Sheffield said. "Having all the student bands was a great idea and made for a fun time." However, music wasn't all that was going on during Spring Fling. Students en- joyed activities such as a dunk- ing booth and Karokie video. And plenty of food was on hand to satisfy the most dis- criminating palates.

I can't throw three interceptions against a good team in our class and expect to win. I certainly can't against a team like Au- burn."

Senior co-captain Jenny Cherry said the year was different because "we had Coach Parks to push us so that we could accomplish our goals." Coach Brenda Parks sparked a greater interest in the cheerleading program and a talented Junior Varsity squad appeared. Much time, dedication and work went into the cheerleading effort with a season that began in August a week before the college campus camp and continued into the spring for basket- ball season. The Varsity cheerleaders continued to travel to each away game in support of the football team throughout the fall season and into the play-offs in December.

The Lady Bulldogs beat Tennessee State University twice and lost to East- ern Kentucky and Tennessee Tech in close- margin games. This tournament was the first of five season tour- naments for the volleyball team. The team was young, with four new freshmen faces, but strengthened by a strong work ethic and dedicated returning team members. Coach Malinda Ashcraft said she liked this team and their competitive na- ture. "They have a strong work ethic and a strong in- tensity about them," she said. At the second tournament in Thibodaux, Louisi- ana, the young team was still learning to play together and coordinate win- ning on the court. The team lost three matches to Nicholls State, Southern Louisi- ana and the Uni- versity of Port- land, bringing the record to 4-6. The next tourna- ment action took place in Atlanta at the Georgia State Tournament where the Lady Bulldogs con- fronted confer- ence opponents, Stetson and Mer- cer.

Despite a losing record of 11-17, Samford volleyball was 4-2 in confer- ence play and getting ready for the TAAC tourna- ment in Atlanta. About losing, junior Kacy Johnson said the team was strug- gling and "... couldn't seem to reach fifteen first." For the final home game of the season against Jacsonville State, the Bulldogs lost in a two-and-a-half- hour match against the Game- cocks. In three games of 10-15, 8- 15 and 15-17, the offense encoun- tered scoring trouble and the defense had to deliver. Coach Ashcraft said that when playing in rigid matches, "you have to wait for the other team to make a mistake . . . and they had six experienced se- niors on the court."

Among the honors they received were Highest Pledge Class GPA and Highest Fraternity GPA. In athletics they were also victorious, claiming the Inter- Fraternity Council championships in football, volley ball, and softball as well as the All Sports Championship trophy. The brothers of Sigma Chi could be found in almost every portion of Samford life. Several brothers were members of the Student Government Association and the Senate. Such diversity within the brotherhood proved to be beneficial in building a stronger fraternity. Such extensive involvement throughout the campus has built a reputation for excellence through service and dedication. Service was a another aspect of the brotherhood this year. They helped with Camp Smile-A-Mile, a camp for children with cancer, throughout the year and picked them up and brought them to several Samford football games. All of these things have played a part of building a very strong brother- hood at Samford, proving that only through hard work and dedication can anything of true value be gained.

As they continue building on their traditions of honor, truth, and love, the men of Sigma Nu pledged to be a vital part of the fu- ture of Samford University. Derek R.

Pledging in almost 30 new guys, they began the year as busy as ever. The fall semester included many parties and other social events. Some of them were the Deadman Halloween Party, Fall Formal, and the Founder's Day parties. Of course, parties were not the only things going on. Push America, their national philanthropy, kept them busy with their Push-A- Thon for 24 hours collecting money for the severely handicapped. The Scaffold Sit also helped them raise more money for this worthy cause. The spring brought Step Sing once again. This year was a special one for the brothers as they won first place in the men's division as well as the Sweepstakes trophy. Special thanks to Matt Snow, Step Sing direc- tor, for all his work. The Toll Road served to raise money for Push America. As usual, the brothers trav- elled to Fort Walton Beach for the Rose Ball Formal to wind down the year. Special mention to Jay Holder who will participate in the Push America, Journey of Hope ride from San Franciso to Charlotte to help raise money for the national philanthropy.

As the fall began, rush was of the utmost importance. Building a good pledge class could only help build a better brotherhood. Focusing on music, the brother splayed for Inner City Missions, at a Christmas party for children with AIDS and finished with their annual Christmas concert. Socially, the year was full of parties, from band camp to Winter Formal on to the spring semi- formal. Step Sing, of course, brought much excitement as several of the brothers played in the Step Sing band. This year was busy for the men of Sinfonia, but their spirit of dedica- tion was seen in all their efforts. Some of the brothers take a break between songs to pose with "Santa" as they played for the AIDS House Christmas Party.

The sisters of Delta Omicron, professional music fraternity for women, enjoyed a very successful year. The fall events included rush, Fall Carnival at Homewood Park, a Christmas concert, and the God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen Formal with the brothers of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. The spring brought Step Sing, with the sisters of Delta Zeta, and Junior and Senior Recitials for many of the sisters. The Omicron Gamma chapter added twelve new sisters this year and held the "Un-Formal" at Mountain Brook Inn, as well as hold- ing several fundraisers during the semester. Pursuing excellence through music and academics was a priority for all of the sisters.

We have been mistaken for social, honor, and professional fraternities, but we are none of these. Alpha Phi Omega has been at Samford since 1941, providing service to the cam- pus, the community and the country. Our goals are embodied in our three cardinal principals: Leadership, Friendship and Service. Our strength lies in our diver- sity. We combine the brotherhood of fraternity with the purpose of service This make us a powerful force on this campus and many others around the country.

With the help of the brothers of Alpha Phi Omega, the sisters raised money for the local AIDS Baby House and collected clothes for those staying at the Firehouse Mission. This year they also enjoyed the social atmo- sphere of sorority life as well as ser- vice. This combination added to a great time for all.

Early mornings, long hours of marching in the sun, intense rehearsals and endless memorization were only some of the joys of the great experience known as band camp. The hours spent during camp were designed to bring all the members of the band together to produce a field show for the coming football season. The entertainment of the home crowd was not the only thing that was accom- plished from their hard work. Discipline, dedication and an understanding of the team concept were engrained on the performers. The old saying, "There is no T in team," was as true there as anywhere else. Learning the value of individual excellence and incorporating that into the big picture was one of many objectives of the marching band, and called for extra effort from all involved. Hard work was not the only thing the band spent their time doing. The many hours of intensity and con- centration were matched by hours of relaxation and fun. Several dances and parties were held during band camp and the rest of the semester, including the long awaited party at director Jon Remley's house. "Perfection... it's what we're all about, and it doesn't come easy." Brian Dunn While the rest of the band marches on the field, Sandy Walker and Rebecca Ferguson play percussion from the sidelines.

The choir is known around the world for their musical excellence, and they sacri- ficed their extra time to acheive the standards expected of them. Dr. L. G. Black, Dean of the School of Music, has directed the choir for 28 years and served as inspiration for excellence through some of the most difficult sacred choral literature ever written.

Most of this year's staffers worked on the book last year so learning to work together was not a problem. The year pro- ceeded as normal with the exception of the advisor, Dr. Edna Ellison, mov- ing to California. Her loss placed greater responsibility on all of the section editors to get their work done well and on time. Making the move from hand- drawn layouts to "the Mac" was a great improvement if you understood how to use it. All editors took classes to learn Pagemaker and design their own layouts. Many late nights (and early mornings) were spent in the office trying to finish all the work for each deadline. Even into the summer, several sections worked to finish pages from late in the semester. Working on the staff offered great experience for those studying journal- ism and those who simply enjoy working on staff. The 1993 Entre Nous included: Tiffany Townsend (Editor-in-Chief), Mark Mantooth (Aca- demics), Melanie Green (Sports), Brian Dunn (Greeks/Organizations), Lisa Oliphant (Campus Life), Jennifer Latham (People), Jackie Colavita ( Cam- pus Ministries), Bonnie Siler ( Mini- Mag)- Brian Dunn An gel Flight Angel Filght is a service organiza- tion that supports AFROTC, Air Force, Air Force Association and Arnold Air Society.

Teaming up with the cadets from ROTC offered more chances to work to support their common goal. Dining In and Dining Out were the two big events of the year. Both of these nights included dinner, speak- ers and a dance to end things up.

STUDENT MINISTRIES •* 113 It was a year of change for Cam- pus Ministries, and what better way to start change, than to go straight from the top? Follow- ing her call from God, the new Campus Minis- tries director came to "Sammy U", and with the help of her Ex- ecutive Council, she met the organizations intended goals. "Overall, our goal was to help Christians grow, and help non- Christians to understand who Jesus Christ is," director Brenda Sanders said. The group also had a goal to meet with-in themselves: to unify all the individual minis- try teams, so they could un- derstand each other and pro- ductively work together. The leaders met regularly to discuss agendas for future meet- ings, and to plan s activi- ie positive outcome of their goal, was the merging of BSU's Executive Coun- cil with the Executive Coun- cil of Campus Ministries. "Christians need to be unified," Sanders said. With both coun- cils, "under one roof," it was easier to work as a team. As a college student, Sanders at- tended Baylor University and received her Masters in Com- mercial Art. She then went to Southwestern Theological Seminary for a Masters in Reli- gious Education. Sanders came to Birmingham from Houston, Texas, where she held the same type of position at Houston Bap- tist University, as she does here at Samford. "I never thought I'd leave," she said, "I was perfectly happy where I was. God really changed my heart, and I knew this is where He wanted me to be." Sand- ers loved work- ing and fellowshipping with the stu- dents, and was actively involved in everything the organization did. Whenever there was an activity with the title Campus Minis- tries attached to it, she was there. "One of the things that drew me to Samford was the caliber of students and their real desire for ministry," she explained. "I wanted to be involved in touching the lives of students who would go out and touch the world." Not only was Sanders available for members of her organization, but her office door was open to anyone who had questions about Campus Minis- tries, or just needed a shoul- der to cry on. Many students who were about to overload on stress came to her for comfort, because they knew she wouldn't turn them away. "I'm here for the students," she said, "and I'll stay — as long at God wants me t( be here."

Jackie Colavita STUDENT MINISTRIES** 115 Prez.April & Student Ministries April Robinson, Presi- dent of the Ex- ecutive Council of Student Minis- tries, can be found anywhere from delivering sermons in Reid Chapel, to plan- ning student ministry events in Director Brenda Sanders office. Robinson was a senior honoree at Hang- ing of the Green, and helped to oversee many student minis- tries projects such as Christian Emphasis Week, and Boot Scoot Boogie. She was also partly in charge of the nine local mis- sions Student Ministries offers. Each of the ministries gave students the chance to lead personal Bible studies and discipleship groups to the Samford commu- nity. "See ya' at the Pole", a 7:00 a.m. meeting of over 200 stu- dents at the flagpole to pray for the school and our govern- ment officials, was organized by World Aware- ness. Boot Scoot Boogie was also sponsored by World Aware- ness, and aside from raising money, the dance offered students the opportunity to watch freshman Eric Motley attempt to learn to square dance. "We were all in the same boat. Nobody knew how to do that!" Brenda Sanders said. April Robinson says she "saw student ministries as my opportunity to make a differ- ence in the lives of individual students, as well as in my commu- nity." Robinson oversaw the officers on the executive coun- cil. She was responsible for "spurring on the spiritual growth for the council." She delivered devotions and encouraged members to "write a mission statement for their individual lives, what their long term goal was." After graduation, in addition to planning her wedding, Robinson was the Co- BSU director at Appa- lachian State University in Boone, NC. She said, "The col- lege years, ages 18 to 22, were a crucial time for questioning. We asked, who are we? Who did we want to be? Where did we come from? Where were we going? Inevitably we asked the question, is there a God, and what does he have to do with me? I wanted to be a part of this questioning time, and help find the fulfilling answers that would not leave you feeling void and confused." In essence, stu- dent ministries helped complete the meaning of our motto, "for God, For Learn- ing, Forever." Samford profes- sors helped institute the "For Learning" por- tion. However, il was the purposq and goal of student minis- tries to imple- ment the theme "For God" and "Forever."

This faction of Campus Minis- tries consisted of Adopt- a -Grand- parent, AIDS Babies, a literacy program, Samford iNC, Family Court, Habitat for Hu- manity, Son Reflectors, Word Players, and Ville Crew. Each group kept in contact with the Campus Ministries Coun- cil through Sandra Betts and Monica Ikner, who acted as liaisons. In the Adopt-a-Grand- parent mission, participating students went to a nursing home once a week to visit their "adopted" grandparent. The students shared Christ and gave them special attention to help compensate for the lack of family visits. The stu- dents who par- ticipated in the AIDS Babies mission volun- teered at a home in Birmingham called, A Baby's Place, once a week, for an hour, to entertain the children. There were two caretakers in addition to the volunteers, and it was possible for the students to train to become caretakers. The Local Missions literacy program was started after Marriot Food Services asked for a program to aid their employees. Marriot agreed to pay for the neces- sary materials if Campus Minis- tries would pro- vide the person- nel. However, none of the Marriot employ- ees came forward for the help, so the mission did not fulfill it's original goal. The participants in the literacy pro- gram have hopes for the future. Samford iNC, (i Need Christ), participants went once a week to the Harrison Recreation Cen- ter, the Jimmy Hale Mission for homeless men and the Baptist Center. In these inner-city envi- ronments, the students shared Christ with the residents, espe- cially children. Family Court went to a juvenile detention center once a week. The students were able to build relationships with the youths, and share Christ with them. Habitat for Humanity partici- pants repaired or built houses for low income fami- lies. This mission is associated with it's national organization. Students in the Word Players and the Son Reflectors missions went into the commu- nity to perform plays and skits based on Scrip- ture. The Son Reflectors used solely mimed skits, while the Word Players used dialogue. The Ville Crew mission partici- pants went to the inner-city to interact and share Christ with the children. Rachel Dwyer STUDENT MINISTRIES** 117 Ville Crew was Spreading God's Love The inner city mission group, Ville Crew, spent another exciting year ministering to the children of Loveman's Village. The purpose of this group was to lead these chil- dren to Jesus Christ by show- ing love, con- cern, and per- sonal attention. Each Saturday, Samford stu- dents met at 9 a.m. to go play with the chil- dren, sing songs, and share a bible story. Included in the events of this ministry, was the annual Fall Carnival at Loveman's Vil- lage, and Kid's Day in the Spring. These events were special to both the students and the children. Games, prizes, food and fun were all a part of these activities.

We call it our vision verse: "For I have raised you up for this very purpose: that you might know my power and that my name might be pro- claimed in all the earth.

Volunteers also shared about their faith in God, with the hopes that the youths would want to know more about Christ and how He could help them through their troubled times. The youths, ranging in age from 12 to 18 years old, were put in the cen- ter because they had been arrested for a crime or they had previous family prob- lems. While they awaited their trail date, they needed people, young college stu- dents, to give them guidance and encourage them to change their lives around and set new goals while they still could.

But Campus Minis- tries unveiled this secret and made Samford the first univer- sity to send students to the "Aloha State" to do mission work for our partners. Nine students, including Direc- tor Brenda Sand- ers, went to the University of Hawaii to repaint their BSU dorm. This dorm was a 90 year old plan- tation house that provided stu- dents who couldn't afford the state's living costs, a way to go to college. The task, how- ever, was not as easy as just painting, the group first had to scrape the old paint off the building, then sand it down, clean out termite eggs, and finally, they were able to paint. In addition their construc- tion work, the students led worship services at two different ■* (top):Casey Fitzsimmons helps carry a beam while repairing the Hawaii Baptist Student Union dorm. •» (middle R): Holly Sparks soaks up some of the sun's rays while sweeping the porch of the building.

The rest of the cost, $600 per person, was raised by the students. Some were sponsored by various orga- nizations, while others received donations. One student paid her way with money she won from a writing contest! But what ever it took, those determined to participate found a way to pay their ex- penses, and their visit to our "partner state" was a true suc- cess. ■» (middle L): Bethany Shackleford helps scrape the old paint off the building. •* (bottom): Monika Ikner and Jade Acker attempt to keep their balance on a scaffold while scraping paint off the building.

The fund rais- ers were led by Toni Baggiano and Lisa Stagg, who along with others, organized the Fall Carnival, Cookies To Go, and exam care packages. The Fall Carni- val raised $1500, and allowed every on, and off, campus organiza- tion to pull together and work on a joint project. Cookies To Go mailed forms to students' homes, so parents could send treats to their children. Cookies were sent for birthdays, a wish of good luck or just a thinking of you. The caf helped make the cookies, and Alpha Phi Omega delivered them. Exam care packages were also ordered by parents for their students during exam week. The profits helped to send Toni Baggiano •* (boi \ kazakh girl at the Music ival in Madeo. students to places such as Russia, Hawaii, and Alaska.

BSU was an active organization that sponsored a number of differ- ent activities on and off campus. BSU Breakaway was held weekly, where the stu- dents planned a worship service with a guest speaker. They also were involved in a number of Bible study and dis- cipleship groups. There was a Christmas party, a Boot Scoot Boogie, which was a joint project with World Awareness, and two retreats. Their first retreat was an overnight expe- dition held in a cave during the fall. Hence, it was called, the Great Adven- ture. For their second retreat, they took a trip to a camp for mentally and physically handicapped children. Here, they helped with the camp's maintenance and repairs.

ACADEMICS •* 129 ACADEMICS SAM FORD was Alabama's largest privately supported instutition of higher learning. Founded in 1841, it became one of the first in Alabama to be accredited by the Southern Associa- tion of Colleges and Schools, in 1920. Although the Samford tradition reaches back a century and a half, the university continued to be recognized for the excellence of its academic programs. Samford offered 1 9 degree programs in eight colleges—the Howard College of Arts and Sciences, the Cumberland School of Law, the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education, the Beeson Divinity School, and the Schools of Busi- ness, Nursing and Music. Samford fac- ulty members held degrees from more than 1 00 universi- ties in the United States, Europe, and Latin America. No graduate students taught classes at Samford. Samford' s 4,248 students enjoyed the quality instruction and human scale of a small, private liberal arts college, and the pace and program of a comprehensive university offering 89 academic maiors and 1 ,200 courses. An extensive pro- gram of computer literacy offered students access to hundreds of PC's in labs spread around the Samford cam- pus, plus computer- assisted learning throughout the curriculum. Samford was prominantly noted in a trio of presti- gious publications for the overall excellence of its programs. Samford was cited by: U. S. News and World Report as one of America's top 25 regional universi- ties; Money Maga- zine as one of the top 40 "best buys" among American colleges and univer sities; and Peterson's Competi tive Colleges as one of the top 10 percer of American col- leges and universi- ties that, "consis- tently attract the brightest students."

Samford students benefit from the best of both worlds: a campus environ- ment for study and i social enjoyment, i and easy access to Alabama's largest economic and social center. Samford' s world was a multi- cultural one, with students from 43 states and 40 coun- tries. Eight years ago, the University expanded its cam- pus to the British Isles, purchasing a 100-year old family hotel in London to serve as an Interna- tional Study Centre. The residential centre is the keystone in Samford's commit- ment to heighten the global awareness of students through study programs in Europe, Latin America and /\Slu.. -- taken from S U. publication AFTER HAVING served nine years as president of Wingate College, in North Carolina, Dr. Tho- mas E. Corts became Samford's 17th president. Born in Terre Haute, Indiana, and reared in Ashtabula, Ohio, Dr. Corts is a graduate of George- town College of Kentucky. He holds Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees from Indiana University and an honorary doctorate from Georgetown College. Prior to assuming the presi- dency of Wingate College, in 1974, he held a number of position at George- town College includ- ing assistant to the president, director of planning and devel- opment, executive dean, and executive vice president. He also served as co- ordinator of the Higher Education Consortium of Kentucky. During his first year at Samford, Dr. Corts inaugurated such activities as the Semester Abroad Program, which offers opportunities for international study through a Samford Centre in London, England. He continued to provide leadership that enabled Sam- ford to reach new heights in enroll- ment, in computer intensification, and in academic recogni- LlOn. -taken from S.

London Study Cen- tre offers courses abroad The campus at 12 Ashburn Gardens in London. England, was purchased and reconditioned in time to accomodate its first group oi students in the tall ol 1984, and ever since has succeeded m attracting stu- dents and faculty to trn and to live m a Charles' palace, and generally located in an area which made London's attractions easily accessible. The facility could accomodate up to 19 fall or spring term students and up to 50 Jan-termers during each of its two short sessions. To take care of its students, the cost of the trip covered the basics such as airfare, twelve hours of tuition, housing costs, a continental breakfast each morning, and a weekly stipend to serve as a meal allowance.

Along with these, the cost also included tickets to eight plays and weekend trips to Paris and to destina- tions within the U. K. A myriad of educational opportuni- ties abounded not only in the classroom but in students' own inde- pedant studies and internships. Students have gotten to see, firsthand, the workings of London solicitors, the Liberal Democrats (Britain's third political party), the interna- tional accounting firm of Coopers and Librand, and even Parliament, among others.

Students can opt to take part in a guided tour of the city, or to discover the City of Lights independantly. The tour covers sights such as the famed Eiffel Tower and l'Arc de Triomphe by bus, and it allows time to roam through the Notre Dame cathedral and the exhibits in the Louvre. The last day of the tour is spent in the grand palace and gardens of Versailles.

Latif Addresses the United Nations MOST OF US will remember the second weekend of September in the fall of 1992 with a grimace at the thought of the Bulldogs' 55-0 loss to Auburn. There is at least one Samford student, though, who will always look back positively on that weekend. While the rest of us hit the highway heading south, Ambereen Latif was in a plane heading north to speak on behalf of her coun- try and her school. On Wednes- day, September ninth, Latif opened her mailbox to find a notice from the United Nations; mail that looked to her like "junk mail," which prompted her to throw it away. Not until the follow- ing day when she received a plane ticked did she take the situation seri- ously. In one day, she would be ad- dressing the U. N., and she didn't have any idea what she would say. That is when she sought the aid of Dean Franklin and Mr. Nunnely of informa- tion services. With their help, Latif quickly composed a short speech on the lack of action required to solve the unrest between her native Pakistan, and India and China. As she was chosen because she was a student, Latif spoke a bit about Samford. Below: In Convo, Ambereen Lai addresses issues on behalf of international students.

N. was a campus organization set up "to aid students in becoming more aware of global affairs," according to its president, Nicola Bradburn. The three- year-old program was comprised mostly of political science, history, and international relations majors; however, the organization was not exclusive to students in these fields. In the national Model U. N., col- leges sent students in character of the country they were representing. Last year, Bradburn, along with Heather Fordham, the group's vice president, Rachelle Gable. E. J. Smith. Mike Roberts, John Brewer, and David Young, attended the Model U. N. in San Francisco, California, repre- senting the Philippines. "Getting ready for the Model U. N. "requires a lot of preparation and strength- ens research skills," said Fordham. Once at the Model U. N., represen- tatives discussed and debated real issues facing the global community, such as placement of United Nations forces, and the rights of the people in given countries.

"A group of friends, in the ultimate analy- sis, is all the Socratic Society really is," said the Society's first president, Jonathan Caro. The purpose of the fifteen- member group was to continue to support intellectual activity within the University. "There is much available knowledge and experience, and this certainly isn't restricted to what occurs in class," said Caro. "The ideas of the indi- vidual are the most powerful of all."

Truman Scholarship for Alabama. Over 500 colleges and universities across the nation submitted applicants' names to the Truman Foundation in Wash- ington, D. C. There, the 1000-plus student applicants' files were reviewed, and final- ists were chosen for each state. Finalists were interviewed by a board of local public servants, and a winner was chosen. Seventy-five to 85 scholarships are available each year. The $30,000 scholar- ships are awarded to students who express an interest in public service, and is in- tended to aid in graduate studies. Brewer plans to use the money to finish his undergraduate degrees, and then hopes to attend either Colombia Univer- sity, Georgetown University, or a univer- sity in the United Kingdom, to complete graduate studies in International Affairs.

Photo hy K.T. Harrell OF PASSAGE ur Rites of Passage during the past year challenged us in many areas of life. ?^ The Rites of the Game dared us to compete and excel.* Rites of Initiation encouraged us to join and become in- volved. $ Rites of Knowledge inspired us to learn and understand, o The Rites of Service urged us to minister and give of ourselves with love.* Our willingness to use all that we gained from our jour- ney emboldened each of us as we ea- gerly accept our Rites to Ascension* Tiffanv Townsend 152 •* Closing COLOPHON The theme of the 1993 Entre Nous encompassed all aspects of student life here at Samford University. Each and every Samfordite undergoes a series of changes, his or her Rites of Passage. Sticking to a classic look the cover is lithograph, one color, with two grains. The logo is embossed in bronze, while the spine is hotstamped. Typestyles include New York, Helvetica, and Monaco. The 1993 Entre Nous staff was advised by Dr. Edna Ellison until her departure in January. Many thanks to Bill Wolfe, our Delmar representative, who came from Atlanta to help us. And thanks to Lou Arnold for supplying last minute pictures. Dean Franklin and Gail Sawyer came through again this year under adverse conditions, and we thank them for their willingness to help.
